Lewis says he’s not the only threat to se­cu­rity

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

HOME­LAND star Damian Lewis in­sists the hit US show could con­tinue with­out him. The show, which also stars Claire Danes, has been hailed as the best new US drama on TV. Bri­tish ac­tor Lewis (pic­tured with Danes), who plays Nicholas Brody, says the cre­ators are of the opin­ion that you can’t flog a dead horse for­ever. ‘‘It will run its nat­u­ral course. If that’s only four years, it will only be four years . . . and there’s no guar­an­tee that my char­ac­ter will be around,’’ Lewis tells Ra­dio Times. The Golden Globe win­ner says the se­ries could sim­ply re­birth it­self each year by find­ing a new threat. ‘‘So you can go past Brody be­cause the an­chor of the show is in the CIA, it’s in the threat to home­land se­cu­rity,’’ Lewis says. Lewis re­cently re­vealed he has signed a seven-year Home­land con­tract, but in­sists his deal doesn’t guar­an­tee a fu­ture on the se­ries. His co-star David Hare­wood’s char­ac­ter David Estes was re­cently killed off in the drama.
